Warner Robins man accused of murdering child | News
A Warner Robins man is in jail for the murder of a his 11-month-old son, according to the Houston County Juvenile Investigation Division.
They say Charles Michael Taylor, age 26, was arrested last Thursday for the murder of Peyton Taylor. He's now in the Houston County jail, charged with murder and aggravated battery.
Peyton Taylor has been dead for about 8 months. According to the incident report from December 14th, Charles Taylor took his son to the Houston Medical Center with severe head injuries.
Taylor then told investigators he dropped his son on a tile floor.
The house where it allegedly happened is located on Tallulah Trail Road in Warner Robins.
Investigators say the infant never regained consciousness and died at a children's hospital in December.
Houston County Coroner Danny Galpin said, "The father claims he dropped the baby. If he had dropped him, there would be one head injury. But the child had several head injuries. We don't know what was used to cause those injuries."
Galpin says GBI medical examiner James Whitaker completed his investigation last week, and ruled the death as a homicide.
After that ruling, the lead investigator Todd Shepherd took out a warrant for Charles Taylor's arrest.
Shepherd says this is still an open investigation. The Houston County District Attorney's office says no court date is set for Taylor at this point.
